Smoking Habits

Smoking cigarettes is the Turks' favorite national pastime. Their smoking habits are known worldwide and even some sayings such as “Smoking like Turk” which is used for heavy smokers or “Gives off smoke like a Turk” which is used for smoking chimneys.

However, based on the changes made to the law that regulates tobacco and the consumption of tobacco products in May 2008 and July 2009, smoking is prohibited in public transportation vehicles, in terminals, airports, banks, restaurants, bars, cafes, village coffeehouses and nargile (water pipe/hubble-bubble)) cafes. Smoking is also prohibited under umbrellas installed in gardens. Smoking is not banned in prisons, nursing and rehabilitation centers for seniors, mental hospitals, hotels and on the decks of ships sailing overseas as long as specific areas are assigned for smoking.

Nargile is among the most interesting and joyous smoking habits. Tourists, who visit Turkey, are attracted to the hubble-bubble and try once. Moreover they often buy nargile and its tobacco as souvenirs to take home to their family and friends.

Several establishments produce, import and sell cigarettes, pipe and cigar tobaccos  of well known international brands and you can find them almost everywhere, even at peddlers on the streets. Don't hesitate to bargain when shopping at these peddlers.

Despite all these various alternatives we recommend you not to smoke for the sake of your health. We wish you nicotine-free days
